Great location, grateful for the extras, but some basics are lacking
Cottage is in superb location. Parking is a bit difficult - one car can park outside the cottage (providing someone has not taken it first) and another can park at the Nook Farm B&B next door. The welcome hamper was very good (eggs, milk, bacon, Tbags, cake, chocolate, crisps, coffee). Main areas in the cottage were clean, but the cottage was shabby in some areas, and to be honest, needs some redecoration. Windows and sills need painting and had not been cleaned in a while - lots of cobwebs, dead flies etc. Some nice lounge furniture, but the furniture in the bedrooms was old and looked as if it had been just cobbled together. Lots of ornaments and nick-nacks, probably to give that "cottage feel", but to us, just added to the rather grubby feel. Many reviews seem to be glowing, and perhaps we are just a bit fussy, but we have stayed in much better cottages before, and if spending over £1000 for the week, would have expected more.

A lovely Cottage with lovely views over the fells, the owners were very friendly and helpful. Situated in a lovely quiet village.
Mr Bunday

We had a wonderful week! We had lovely long walks every day and were able to leave the car behind on some days and set off straight from the village. Nook Cottage was the perfect place to come home to at the end of the day. Our hosts made us feel very welcome. A big thank you for everything!
Ms Seward

Being located on a working farm was great. The cottage had loads of character and was comfortable. There were walks of all levels from the doorstep and we only got in the car once during the week. We loved the fire, all fuel was supplied. The owner was very friendly and helpful. A super week.
Mr Hutchinson

Excellent and cosy cottage. The welcome hamper was a really nice touch. The cottage was in an excellent location for walking.
